Bryan Ferry is considered by many to be a master in arousing passions. He has done this with the come-hither looks of the women who have graced his album covers, as well as with his sophisticated sound, be it applied to blue-eyed soul, avant-garde rock, or popular hits from the 1930s. The miner’s son-turned-musician is not just an object of fascination for women of all ages; he has also been a role model for more than a few working-class young men.
Irregardless if it is the futuristic sounds of Roxy Music, or the nostalgic excursions into Tin Pan Alley, doo-wop, soul, or jazz – Bryan Ferry’s music creates the right atmosphere and ambience. Last year, this man with the noble aura came out with the critically-acclaimed album “Olympia”, a wonderful mixture of delicate cover versions and sentimental originals. Ferry’s voice continues to emote an atmosphere of almost sinful luxury.
